My card is for the As You See It Challenge. It is a color challenge of Blueberry Bushel, Granny Apple Green, and Pineapple Punch all SU colors.
The colors reminded me of a tropical place, so I used the Toucan Do It set by Catherine Pooler Designs with these cute tropical birds. I stamped my images on Gina K Designs Artist’s Choice cardstock with Versamark Black Onyx ink, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Each image was colored with the SU markers that matched the challenge color list and I added Tombow orange colored markers for the beaks and flowers. The gems are from The Paper Studio and a Crafter’s Companion Sparkle pen was used to add a bit of sparkle to the leaves and flowers.
I enjoyed this challenge using product that I owned.
I worked on the As You See It speed challenge. It took a total of 7 minutes and 25 seconds. The cardbase was laying there scored, so I used it.
The stamp set used is SU Love What You Do. I used Lawn Fawn Blue Jay ink for the flower and greeting, Forget-me-Not for the background wash. Since this set had a stamp that was basically a wash of color, it made this challenge a lot easier. I tried using an ornament set with a punch. Stamping the ornament and punching it out took eight minutes, then there was a greeting, so I was out of time on that one. I will most likely finish it at a slower pace.
This is for the Lovely as a Tree challenge at As You See It.
I stamped the smaller tree from The Giving Tree by Gina K
Designs in Warm Cocoa on four small panels layered over a piece of Warm Cocoa
card stock.The set has elements to depict all seasons. I stamped the snowflake
using a Summer Sky marker by Memento. The other inks I used are by Gina K
Designs – Bubblegum Pink for the Spring
flowers, Jelly Bean Green for the Summer Leaves and Tangerine Twist for the
Autumn Leaves. The sentiment was stamped on white in Warm Cocoa layered on a
Warm Cocoa mat.
This is my last card for the tree challenge. This one uses Lovely as a Tree by Stampin Up, with a greeting from Maymay Made it, From All of Us.
The greeting lends itself to be used for most all occasions. This seems like a masculine card to me, as it is mostly brown tones. The cardstock is Naturals White and Early Expresso from Stampin Up. The ink used is Memento Expresso Truffle. I even pulled out my Stamp-a-ma-jig as this set is on wood block. This was my one of my mother’s well loved sets. This is probably the second time I have pulled it out. I seek Split Coast Stampers for inspiration with this set as it has been available for 20 years.
Another tree card that was completed today. I am still using Thoughtful Branches and the greeting is from Autumn Wishes, by Gina K Designs. I had so much fun stamping the leaves in Autumn colors. I used Hero Arts and Lawn Fawn inks for the leaves and Memento ink for the branches and greeting. I am enjoying pulling out older sets to use along with the combination of inks and papers.
The cardstock used is Stampin Up Naturals White and Early Expresso. This will be entered in the As You See It Challenge.
I have been making tree cards today. Here is the first one:
I used SU Thoughtful Branches for the trees, ground, and birds. The sentiment came from The Stamps of Life, lights4Christmas set. I had to perform stamp surgery on the sentiment as I needed it stacked.
